New York Jets
The Titans host the New York Jets on Monday Night Football. The Jets are 6-7 and still alive for a playoff spot if they win their last three games, so it's not two teams with nothing to play for. New York is coming off a 17-10 road win in Jacksonville last week where all of their points came in the second half.
After the jump, what I saw from the Jets last week and the others of their games I've managed to sit through.
1. The Jets are a bad offense. Derek Cox played, but Aaron Ross was out and Rashean Mathis is now on IR, yet no Jets player had more than 4 receptions or 37 receiving yards. Two of their scoring drives started in Jacksonville territory, and the other one started at their 43. They struggled to break the 50 on their drives that didn't start with great field position.
2. It all starts at the quarterback position. Mark Sanchez interposes moments of semi-competence with some truly dreadful play. The Jets try to hide them if...

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan flip-flopped on Tim Tebow's possible role in Monday night's game against the Tennessee Titans. Ryan told reporters Friday that Tebow may serve as a personal protector on punts and might see action in the Wildcat formation on offense. Earlier in the week, Ryan said Tebow would not perform those functions. Ryan changed his mind after watching...
As the Jets gear up for their suddenly big game in Tennessee tonight, the playoffs are more than just a pipe dream. We are all familiar with the scenarios at this point, and with Pittsburgh and Indianapolis losing yesterday, a win tonight puts the Jets right in the thick of the playoff hunt with two games to go. Should that happen, it’s going to be awfully hilarious to see the...
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that FS LaRon Landry would not take a “Hometown discount” to re-sign with the Jets this offseason.
Landry will be a free agent after his one year deal, due to previous health issues, is done but after a healthy and productive season Landry’s stock and value have gone up back to his best and the Jets will want to re-sign him...
Braylon Edwards will be returning to the field dressed in New York Jets green once again tonight and it sounds like this won't be the only return engagement he will have coming up.
The wide receiver is being sued for child support again after fathering a second love child with yet another woman, according to Page Six of The New York Post.
Edwards — who was picked up on waivers...
The New York Jets signed fullback John Conner Saturday to replace Chris Pressley, who was placed on injured reserve. Conner was drafted by the Jets in 2010 but was cleared from the roster earlier this season in an injury settlement. Pressley injured his right knee in Thursday night's victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. He started in seven of the 14 games he played this year.
Tim Tebow formally of the Florida Gators and now of the New York Jets came in on a short yardage situation and seized the day. CARPE DIEM! Tebow came in and got the first down against the Tennessee Titans. Mark Sanchez couldn’t have down that.
The New York Jets (6-7) somehow still have a chance to make the playoffs. The Jets will travel to Tennessee to play against the Titans. (4-9) The game is scheduled for a 8:30 pm EST kickoff and will air on ESPN as Monday Night Football.
In order to make the playoffs the Jets need to win their remaining three games and then hope that the Begnals and Steelers each lose one of their...
On Thursday, Jets coach Rex Ryan said Tim Tebow was healthy enough to be the backup quarterback, but not enough so to be the Wildcat quarterback or the teams personal punt protector. Just 24 hours later, the coach reversed that position, saying Tebow was more mobile in practice Thursday than had been expected, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.
He moved around...
Tight end Dustin Keller is inactive for Monday Night Football vs. Tennessee.
This was to be expected as Keller was listed as doubtful with his ankle injury. Jeff Cumberland will start at tight end for the Jets in his absence.
The New York Jets will try to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they take on the Tennessee Titans tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN. Even...

The New York Jets (6-7) are winners of three of their last four contests, and with a victory over the Tennessee Titans (4-9) Monday night, they can remain just on the outer edge of the Wildcard race with two games to go. Gang Green's defense has been stout as of late, and their run game has been just as good. Their passing attack, however, is still stagnant thanks to quarterback...
For reasons unknown, the Tennessee Titans and New York Jets will play a football game on national television tonight. That right there is a classic must-drink situation. Won’t you join us in a beer or 12?
